Sail away on a luxurious seaside adventure
The pristine Western Australian coastline lends itself so beautifully to a sailing adventure. Imagine lounging on the deck of a luxury boat as you float through a sparkling bay, only arising when a glass of wine and canapé calls your name. Life in the South West doesn’t get much better than this.
Taste of the Bays cruise
The crème de la crème of upmarket seafaring tours, this half-day cruise is bound for the aquamarine waters of Geographe Bay from January 2022. Hop aboard the 60-foot pleasure boat as it smoothly cruises from Dunsborough to Bunker Bay with no more than 22 guests on board. Take in the iconic sights while indulging in a 7-course degustation created by the private chef on board, with a celebration of sublime regional produce: blue swimmer crab, Albany rock oysters, black truffles, and Yallingup cheese. When it’s time for a break from all the indulgence, hop down for swim or snorkel in the peaceful water, laze away in bliss on a float mat, or stay on board to read.
Willie Pearl Lugger Cruises
Step on to one of Australia’s last operating pearl luggers. Watch the crew heave the huge sails up and the wind take hold as you set sail in breathtaking fashion. You have two choices – a morning cruise in Busselton or an afternoon cruise in Dunsborough. If you’re a morning lark, enjoy three hours on the water with morning tea provided as you watch for turtles, dolphins and humpbacks. In the afternoon it’s all about canapés, a glass of fresh bubbly, and sunset sunbeams streaming across the deck.
Sailing Charters WA
The 41ft Beneteau Oceanic Cruising Yacht is perfect for small groups and families to see our ancient landscape from the water, with experienced skipper Luke at the helm. Enjoy a sunset or afternoon cruise around the pretty bays near Dunsborough, or check in for a full-day adventure seeing majestic Cape Naturaliste Lighthouse and marvelling at the coast the way sailors in the old days would have. BYO lunch – a picnic hamper would be perfect – with a swim or donut ride in the bay afterwards.
Southern Ocean Sailing
Albany is the perfect cruise location. Deep blue water, a hint of mystery, a splash of history, and stunning verdant coastline lined with crystal clear white beaches and granite cliffs. Book a half-day tour taking in the attractions such as mighty King George Sound, or you can also do something extra special: learn to sail. If you’re interested in the latter, you can spend a few hours with an instructor discovering all the basics or you can also do a half-day charter which will provide a taste of sailing, while still enjoying a relaxed scenic tour with your friends and family.
